While exercise is good for your body, serious exertion depletes important nutrients and energy.

Should You Drink a Recovery Beverage?
The amount and type of recovery drink you need depends on the length and intensity of your workout. When you work out less than an hour, or at light/moderate intensity, you probably don't need a recovery drink.
If you train for over an hour at high-intensity, a recovery shake can help your body recover faster. This is especially true if your workout includes interval or resistance training, lifting, or long-distance running.
After a strenuous workout, choose a recovery drink with protein, carbs, electrolytes, and minerals. It can reduce soreness, shorten your recovery time, and improve your strength and performance.
I've been using Science in Sport REGO Rapid Recovery after runs that last longer than a hour. REGO has protein, carbs, electrolytes, and minerals. I definitely feel better when I drink it after a long, hot sweaty run or hill repeats session.
I've tried and like the chocolate and strawberry flavors. If you're interested in REGO Rapid Recovery, there's a discount code below for you. It's also available in vanilla flavor.
When Should You Drink a Recovery Shake?
In the two hours right after you exercise, your liver produces glycogen at a faster rate. (Glycogen is the short-term way the body stores glucose.)
This is the best time to drink a recovery beverage because it stimulates your pancreas to release insulin. That insulin release tells your cells to absorb glucose. Glucose is metabolized to provide energy.
If you workout a couple of times a day, a recovery drink guarantees you have enough energy to perform well during your second workout. It also protects you from injury, and improves your progress.
Over time, with regular training, you can increase your body's ability to store glycogen. Greater glycogen storage means great endurance and better performance.
